The other reason was that the front seat was flush to the bow side of the seat and could easily accomodate a hinge on th...

16 foot Crestliner Project! Updates! Pics!

Hi All, A few updates. I have the floor in now and have gotten a bit further than these pics but pictures of Spar drying on wood aren't exciting so I will leave them out for now. I got the new transom in and she is tight and stiff now! Will outlast me I think. Very satistfying yet time consuming job...
